Here are three games you should place a wager on today.
With certain teams in Major League Baseball emerging as league leaders, it can be tough to predict winners. However, we have a few games today that are worth a wager. Starting with the New York Yankees at the Baltimore Orioles.
New York Yankees at Baltimore Orioles - 7:05 PM ET
The New York Yankees lead the AL East with a record of 25-9 and are 11-5 on the road this season. Today, they'll face the Baltimore Orioles and have Luis Severino make the start on the mound. Severino is 2-0 this season with an ERA of 4.08 over the course of 28.2 innings.
Tasked with slowing down the Yankees batters today is Kyle Bradish, who has a 1-1 record this season. Over 17 innings pitched, Bradish has given up 15 hits and three home runs. The Yankees might be the team traveling today, but they're -190 favorites to win today.
Ricky's Pick - New York Yankees -190
Atlanta Braves vs. Milwaukee Brewers - 7:40 PM ET
Another game that bettors should take advantage of is the Atlanta Braves versus the Milwaukee Brewers. The Braves will likely be without Ronald Acuna Jr., so keep that in mind. On the mound is Ian Anderson, who has a 3-1 record as a starter. However, playing the Brewers at home will be a tough task for Atlanta.
The Brewers are 22-13 this season, ranking first in the NL Central. With a record of 10-4 at home, it's no surprise that the Brewers are -140 in this game. One thing we should keep in mind is the Brewers have had some uncharacteristic losses, such as a 14-11 loss to the Cincinnati Reds. Tonight, we'll take the Braves to win this one on the road as well.
Ricky's Pick - Atlanta Braves +120
